pok XE FEATURES
The pok XE works with most modern Macs and PCs without the need for a USB dongle. This will leave your USB ports free, and you won’t have to worry about losing or breaking your dongle when you need it the most.
The pok XE is able to save the Win key and the CMD (Apple) keys, which might be used as modifiers in shortcuts, like CMD+S, Win+R. There are dozens of important “Win”/“CMD” controls that you can map with a pok XE.
You get so many options with this feature. If you run two XE devices next to each other—you double your control options.
This feature is also great if you have numerous live musicians or producers that want to connect to the same host audio workstation, but want to maintain their own control configuration.
This also allows you to take the same control functions to different places. For example, you can place two identically mapped pok XE’s at different points in your studio, or at different points on stage.
If you’re going to be working with two or more pok XE’s on the same computer, don’t worry about having to load and keep track of multiple editor programs.
The pok Manager software provides a central interface and can be used to program more than one connected pok XE device. This keeps everything in the same place, and makes the editing process very intuitive.
You can load and run the pok Manager software even if no pok XEs are connected. You can also create or edit saved profiles offline. This greatly increases your flexibility in production and performance.
The Extra-Press feature of enables a button to be pressed in more than one way. With Extra-Press a button may be pressed once (one command), double-pressed (different command), or Fn-pressed (third command).
The same button may be used for three different commands, so you have access to 22 commands set up in one profile.
The pok XE has Auto Mod Keystroke®, which enables double-pressing buttons independently, improving on the global double-press enable feature of the previous model pok. Double-press is enabled on a button if and only if the button's DP field has contents—that means latency is eliminated altogether for all buttons with empty double-press control slots.
There is a new feature allowing you to send two shortcut keys or macros, with a variable delay before the second shortcut key or macro. This is also great for simulating a double-tap keyboard control. You could also use this feature to turn a time based effect on and off in a short time, such as echo.
The pok Manager interface allows you to view the buttons in Expanded mode where you can see all the function strings, or Labels-Only mode which displays the button labels and hides the function strings for a simpler view.
As well as keyboard shortcuts with modifiers such as Shift, Ctrl, or Opt, you can assign strings of up to 6 keystrokes. For example, you can now program up to six “up arrows” to a given control. This greatly expands the possible functions.
The XE works with tablets and phones as a wireless keyboard. No adapter needed. Compatible tablet DAWs include: djay Pro 2, Ferrite Recording Studio, Go Button 3, iMix16Pro, and more.
